What about the shot right at the end of the clip where he's comin' around the bend right towards oncoming traffic with what appears to be a trailer in tow that got sideways !!

Can't say I've ever seen a rig like that. Looks very efficient.

What's in the tank? Brine? or is that just for ballast and additional mass?

I see in the video that it doesn't quite too the outside of the thru lane. Leaves snow inside of the white line on edge of road. Must be a bear with one guy operating the entire setup while trying to drive. I'm sure that all the agencies using these setups pay their drivers extra! Sureeee! I'll bet that he is still responsible for ding and scratch on the rig.

Ny state just spent 62 M $ on those towplows this year. Would hate to get behind one doing both lanes of the thruway at 35 mph

Got to love it when the operator is grinding down the wear bars for now reason. In all of the videos, there wasn't any snow on the road...

I think this is a first but 14 months later I have an answer for you. Yup it could be brine but more and more municipalities are going to beet juice. I have no clue why I looked that up last year but I remember hearing about it and thinking it was crazy. Not so. Gentle on metal in cars, bridges, ... and also easier on landscape near roadways that brine (salt) tends to kill.

So next time you're behind a plow and they are spraying a liquid behind them it might be beet juice

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

That makes the decision for hesitant drivers on whether or not to pass the snow plow.

I'm sure that would scare some folks seeing that under their cars in the garage in the morning
